Get set to take pure exhilaration and driving pleasure to higher levels. The all-new Mazda 3 seizes the senses at first glance with its ravishing looks, designed after Mazda’s “KODO – Soul of Motion” theme. Powered by the latest SkyActiv Technology, this unprecedented sports compact brings you the ultimate in command and response. It enhances Mazda’s proprietary Jinba Ittai sensation of unity, where car and driver perform in tune like horse and rider.
That’s not all. Advanced safety technologies maximise peace of mind, increasing the joy of being behind the wheel. In short, every detail of every innovation in the new Mazda 3 is dedicated to people who love to drive. And who love to make the most of life.
Now, with G-Vectoring Control (GVC)
Smooth transitions between G-forces when braking, turning and accelerating are an essential element of Jinba-ittai, and have been a major development focus at Mazda for many years. This unified feeling to braking, steering and acceleration, along with consistent feedback, allows the driver to control the vehicle easily and precisely. And now G-Vectoring Control (GVC) – the debut technology of SKYACTIV-VEHICLE DYNAMICS – takes this dynamic, unified feel to an even higher level. It’s a logical extension of Mazda’s human-centric design and engineering philosophy that not only concentrates on mechanical efficiency but also considers how a vehicle should be in light of human characteristics. GVC is a new approach to controlling vehicle dynamics that uses the engine to enhance chassis performance, and it gives Mazda vehicles even smoother transitions between G-forces in all driving scenarios.
Design that stimulates the spirit at first sight.
MZD Connect, the new in-car connectivity system that allows you to access more information without compromising safety. New HMI design helps prevent confusion in decision-making, minimize driver’s eye movements, and reduce physical stress. The 7-inch LCD mounted on top of the dashboard reduces downward viewing angle, with graphics designed for instant legibility. Multi-stage operations of MZD Connect are quickly and accurately controlled by a commander control located on the centre console where the driver’s hand naturally falls.
The technical breakthroughs of SkyActiv-G engines realise an astonishing increase in fuel efficiency—up to 15%—as well as a higher level of driving pleasure.
When it comes to your safety, nothing beats the new Mazda 3. Every car has passed the European New Car Assessment Programme (Euro NCAP) and has even won the prestigious Euro NCAP Recognition of Excellence Award in 2013.
For the past 17 years, The Euro NCAP has organized crash-tests and provided motoring consumers with a realistic and independent assessment of the safety performance of some of the most popular cars sold in Europe.
The i-ELOOP regenerative braking system captures the energy lost during deceleration, and saves it to power the electrical equipment when you accelerate again. Combined with i-STOP, the new Mazda 3 can improve fuel economy by up to 10% according to Mazda’s standards.
The i-STOP idling stop system automatically shuts the engine down when you come to a halt after braking, improving fuel economy by saving the fuel wasted when the car stops. Release the brake pedal and fuel is injected directly into the cylinder for an almost instantaneous restart of just 0.35 seconds.
The Active Driving Display mounted above the meter hood shows the most essential driving information with no need to look away from the road. It delivers real-time display of high-priority information as it changes from time to time, helping you to make critical decisions on the go.
